You can try other places but this is the place in greater Boston for challah and bagels. Closest to NY I've found. Just go.

i have never seen people work so hard especially during holidays....their bagels are made on premise so they are hot and extremely tasty... aside from the more regular types of flavors (their sesame and everything bagels are a knockout) they have unusual ones too.... their vegetable cream chesse is so good that I learned how to make it.....

I don't want a chain bagel place...I want a good authentic bagel bakery where I can smell the dough in the oven. I want to walk in and be surrounded by ten to twenty choices of bagels and cream cheese. You get that at Rosenfelds. Though it can get very busy on a Sunday morning or Friday afternoon (they also...

What can I say? Probably the best challah I've ever had, and it was hot out of the oven on Friday morning. Needless to say, it didn't last the hour.

There are no other bagels ANYWHERE that are better than Rosenfelds! They are authentic, and perfect. In addition, they make great challah bread and bubka. No other place compares.

We consider ourselves connoisseurs when it comes to bagels, bubke, and challah. Rosenfelds has been around for decades, and for good reason. Their products are absolutely heavenly. It is no wonder they often run out of their products. They are that good!

Longstanding Newton Centre kosher bagel bakery. High quality bagels with lots of choice. It is a tight space if crowded, but the bagels are really good. Always have been.

I have lived in Newton for about a year and had a bad experience with their customer service when we moved in but decided to give it another chance today. Customer service here is terrible - I have never felt this way in other breakfast places in Newton. I would highly recommend "Bread and Chocolate" and "The Bagel Place" in... More

The challah is fabulous, my daughter ate an entire loaf the first time we tried one. The bagels are New York City like, a little denser and less chewy. We have tried the plain and blueberry. Also tried the bubka, chocolate challah, and raisin challah, but the unadorned challah is the crown jewel of this bakery.

I was craving a very good bagel, and this fit the bill. Also, tried the hamentashen, which are delicious! Also a kosher establishment. And, very nice staff! There is no seating in the winter, but you can sit outside in the summer.
